Lyrics

it’s been a lonely departure
from the way that I’ve known
what is this new place I’m going?
all alone - it makes me wonder
who is this version of myself? How do I ask it to leave?
giving me only backwards directions
I batten down the hatches then cut ‘em free
and let the wind and rain come down on me
blue skies a distant memory

so lay me down and let me be
watch the storm roll overhead
like a freight train running I’m on the tracks
laying as low as I can
take my money and take my pride
bruise my skin and blacken my eyes
set me back to a simple time
watching the clouds roll

you forget that forgetting is easy - you don’t have to try
although that one thing outstays it’s welcome And in the night, eats you alive
who’s is that voice that I’m hearing? It echoes across the ravine
hanging on with the treeline deserters
running the judicious out of town
change the locks and switch it all around
strip the clocks and keep the daylight out

so, Lay me down and let me be
watch the storm roll overhead
like a wild pack of hungry strays
rattling bones and eyes of dread
take my money and take my pride
can’t take my soul can’t take my mind
set me back to a simple time
watching the clouds roll

lay me down and let me be
watch the storm roll overhead
like a rogue wave out at sea
pray for tomorrow and hold my breath
take my fortune, take my delight
can’t take my soul can’t take my mind
set me back to a simple time
watching the clouds roll
listen to the time go
watching the clouds roll
where does all the time go?
